I don't know why you get that error message. It is the first time I hear
about it. Normally SatPC32 runs flawlessly under Windows 7, 32- and 64-bit.
The SatPC32 program folder (usually on 64-bit Windows: C:\Program
Files(x86)\SatPC32) contains some other program files: SatPC32ISS,
Wisat32, WinAOS, WinListen etc.
You can start them from Windows - Start - All Programs - SatPC32 or in
the program folder using the Windows File Manager.
Do these programs work?
At present I suggest you uninstall SatPC32 and make a complete clean
re-installation. (The program folder and the SatPC32 data folder must be
Open the downloaded ZIP file and in the Winzip window click "Extract"
and "all" and unzip the file into an empty folder on you HD. Then RIGHT
click on the setup file in that folder and from the list that opens
choose "Run as administrator".
When the installation is complete start the program to see whether it
works better. If yes configure the program step by step for your
equipment. When you have a working setup run the tool "DataBackup"
(SatPC32 menu "Programs") to save your settings. Then you can easily
restore a working setup when later problems occur.
I hope you get it working.
